I have recently switched to Slackware after using SuSE for some time. When I was using SuSE, I had no problem using pine to send mail. Configured it with my display name and smtp server ( and had no problems.

But now with Slack, I do the same exact thing, and I can't send mail. The strange thing is, I have KMail configured to use sendmail and I can send mail out from there with no problems.

Not quite sure what the problem is. Anyone have any advice for me?

Nope. It just isn't sending. I looked through logs and I dont see any error messages at all.

Is this just a send problem, or is receive not working either?

Have you checked /var/log/messages to see if there's anything reported?

I recall a similar posting (not here), I'll try to dredge it up from my memory banks.
